Through that journey, Joe has learned more about the miracle of life and his passion for jazz.

Soul is loaded with cool trivia and amazing Easter Eggs. Get ready to embark on an epic adventure to discover hidden trivia about this new Pixar movie. And maybe, by the end of this list, you will find a little bit of your soul too.

#6 The story of Soul is equally split between Earth and The Great Before

#7 Before agreeing to Joe as a jazz musician, Jamie Foxx and the director of Soul wanted the main character to be a scientist or an actor

But after all, they still agreed that Joe Gardner should be a jazz musician and not just develop jazz as a hobby, because that would be an insult to the jazz culture.

#8 Why Tina Fey’s character is named 22

The reason is much simpler than you expect: Pixar has released 22 movies in total before they released Soul, starting from Toy Story in 1995 to Onward in 2020.

#9 Return of The Pizza Rat

The Pizza Rat is a viral meme on the internet in 2015: it was the picture of a rat dragging a piece of pizza in New York. That meme is referenced in a fantastic way by Soul.

#10 The movie is unapologetically African-American and it takes pride in it

Source: Fandom Wire

Because Disney wanted the film to stay away from controversial topics like African-American culture, they didn’t want the film to be involved with the Black Culture. But Kemp Powers – Soul’s co-director has the opposite thought and fortunately, he had succeeded in persuading Disney!

#11 Dorothea Williams was also there in Onward

Dorothea Williams, who is played by Angela Bassett in Soul, had a cameo appearance in Onward: her name pops up on the cover of a Vinyl Record.

#12 Soul isn’t a hyper edgy film. Its vibe is similar to that of classic movies, such as ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’

#13 The Pixar lamp has a cameo in Soul

During the opening credits of all Pixar films, the iconic lamp jumps and replaces the letter “I” in Pixar. The Pixar Lamp appears in Soul as well. Luxo Junior, along with the Pixar Lamp and Logo, make a brief yet adorable cameo.

#14 This is the first time Jamie Foxx has done a Pixar Character. His daughter thinks he’s finally made it

#15 Pixar has a lucky charm

John Ratzenberger is an actor who has appeared in nearly every film of Pixar. Ratzenberger appears in Soul as well, although his part is uncredited. You can find his voice inside the hall of You: “We’re seeking for something different.”
